Giampaolo ‘puts Milan experience aside’ ahead of return to San Siro

After 112 days being in charge, Marco Giampaolo was sacked by Milan in October 2019 and replaced with Stefano Pioli. The 53-year-old will return to Milan as Torino’s manager for the first time since being sacked.

Milan

only won three of their seven matches during

Giampaolo’s

reign, scoring six goals and conceding nine. However, the current

Torino

manager believes his time at Rosonnerri was too short to be judged.

“My Milan side had youg and promising players who showed their worth after the lockdown,” Giampaolo said in an interview last summer.

“I can’t talk about that experience, it was too short, seven games are not enough to make an objective assessment,"

he continued.

“My Milan side had quality and personality and today they are reaping the rewards with mister Stefano Pioli. I completely put that experience aside, you have to look ahead."

Torino currently sit 17

th

in the Serie A table, level on points with relegation zoned Parma, in the other end, Milan are topping the table. However, the Italian manager insists he’s

"not worried about facing Milan."
